Cambodian Wild Foods

Hi ECHO Community,

@Muneezay_Jaffery and Dr. Ashley Thuthao Keng Dam are working on a project that aims to document various wild foods in Cambodia. They are in the process of collecting a wealth of local knowledge surrounding these food sources, but they could use some assistance in identifying the scientific names associated with select plants from their findings. I am including a document that contains pictures and local names of some of the plants in question. And I will be posting a guest blog entry from Muneezay soon with more details of the project. If you have any information to contribute to their search, please join the conversation.

Do you know about the iNaturalist app? It’s very useful for getting help with identifying scientific names.

Thanks for the recommendation… we had been using plantnet. But perhaps another reliable app can be used to verify the names.
